4.0 out of 5 stars A well translated, nicely presented book, 27 Dec 2011
This review is from: The Cat in the Hat/Le Chat Au Chapeau (Beginner Book) (Hardcover)
It is surprisingly difficult to find dual language books for children that are authentically and lovingly translated.Given the added fact that Dr Seuss books are reknown for their clever ryhmes, I think the publishers of this book have really succeeeded. The verse does work in French and is as close to the original as it could be whilst still retaining its flow. The pictures and text are well presented and the book itself is an attractive addition to any bookshelf. The story itself is, as you would expect from the writer, fast-paced, fun and anarchic. I find myself wishing that some more of the Dr Seuss books were available in bilingual editions to form a collection.I would certainly recommend this book.
